A New School Year of Firsts and Lasts

Today is the beginning of a bittersweet year for this Mom. My youngest--the baby--is now in middle school. That alone is hard for me to grasp since I can still clearly see his bright shining little face declaring his need to go see "It's a Small World" at Disneyland. And my first-born, also a baby in my eyes, is officially in the 8th Grade--the last year of middle school--ready to embark on a few adventures during the year, spreading his wings & heading towards independence. I would…

The Not Impossible Choice to be a Humanitarian

What am I wearing today? What am I having for lunch? What do I make for dinner? These are just some of the thoughts that invade my mind as I open my eyes and rise out of my comfortable bed. And I'm thankful--truly thankful that my family and I live in a relatively safe environment, not overly worried about random violence and not burdened by physical deprivation. But what are others around the world faced with? What choices are they forced to make on a daily basis?…

Highlights from Las Vegas Vacation 2016

We went back to Las Vegas again this year for more desert adventures! We stayed for 4 days/3 nights and had a wonderful and relaxing time. With Vegas, you have to plan ahead and make sure you take it easy on yourself especially during the hottest parts of the day. A notable change in Vegas is that many of the Casinos on The Strip & Downtown now charge for parking. It's not terribly expensive--about 5-6$ for a few hours, but annoying when you remember the good 'ol "free" days. And also,…

An Important Message from Dan Rather about Presidential Election 2016

As a liberal Democrat Catholic Christian, one can probably imagine I would be surrounded by people will all kinds of political beliefs differing from my own. Some might even say that those labels (liberal Democrat/Catholic Christian) just don't fit in with one another. For me, they always have. It's simple, really. I often make conservative choices for myself, but I feel that others have a right to make their own choices as long as it doesn't affect the common safety of others. And when it…

Add it to Your Reading List: The Darwin Elevator by Jason M. Hough

While at this year's Comic Con International Convention, I was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time and not only acquired a copy of the book The Darwin Elevator, but was also able to meet & briefly chat with the author, Jason M. Hough, while he was signing my copy of the book! What I'm also grateful for is being introduced to a book I probably would have never had the opportunity to read since I usually gravitate towards the Contemporary Romance genre in my reading…

44 Random Questions

I found another one of those random questionnaires on one of my Social Network's newsfeed & thought, well, I haven't done one of these in a while so why not? I've found that I'm a bit of a goody-two-shoes in my life choices so don't expect anything super edgy. LOL! If you care to share your answers with me, feel free. Contact me through any of my Social Media connections or comment below.
